Doctor Charles DeCarli, who heads UCD’s Alzheimer’s Disease Center, says the goal is to find out whether brain imaging can help predict the onset and monitor the progress of the disease. 

"To see how these tools work and possibly use them as biological markers for the disease so that we can do treatments earlier and earlier in this disease with the hope of preventing Alzheimer’s disease."

Researchers are recruiting men and women between the ages of 55 and 90 who are in good health with no memory problems or in good health but have memory problems or have been diagnosed with early Alzheimer’s.
